I went to Kmart for their double coupon event for the first time ever and I doubt I’ll ever go back. This is probably largely due to the fact that the Kmart I went to was, well, not particularly nice. Which is strange, because it’s in a good area. But it’s dark and not well-stocked. I couldn’t find a lot of the items I went to buy.
That said, it’s always a rush to get things for free – especially when it’s things you really use, like wipes. I just wish they’d had the other things I’d planned to get for free too.
To figure out if your local store is doubling, you can check the weekly ad for your area at the Kmart web site. If one of the circulars has a red square that says “Super Double $2″ in the bottom left corner, then your store is probably doubling. To be certain, you could call the store or Kmart’s corporate offices. I just went in and, before I started shopping, asked the woman at the customer service desk if they were doubling.
You can find a list of the rules and coupon match-ups for free or cheap items at Common Sense with Money.
